Ok guys, so my new found love of this hobby has got me bringing my love to my work. I work in Brewster Ny, at a Residential Treatment Center for emotionally challenged kids. I think that fish tanks stocked with Cichlids will bring them as much relaxation and excitment as they do to me, and all of you.

My question is this, when and I hope its soon, that I get funding to get these tanks up and running, what species should I get for the kids? I am not real good with the species so I am hoping that you can point me in the right direction.

Colorful, Active, Personallity are something that I know they all have, but if I were to pick a stock list for 55 g tanks... What should I do...

One good option for a 55g tank is a saulosi species tank.

Both the male and female have very nice colour and because they are dimorphic its easy to obtain the desired f:m ratio.
They are active but not very agressive.
And you will certainly see breeding behaviour.
I think the kids will love such a setup
